I thought it would be fun to share My GO-TO make up look, when I want to wear a full face of makeup. My vibe is ‘natural’ semi-full coverage look (I know a total oxymoron) but it’s what I do. I like my makeup to look as natural as possible, but I like a smokey eye and then I have acne scaring I like to cover up. I shared a complete tutorial and break down on my youtube channel, but below are links to all the products I used if you’re interested.
My go-to make up steps:
Step 2 – NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer – an oil free full-coverage lightweight cream concealer that blurs imperfections, conceals, yet smooths the look of skin with a natural-looking finish – perfect for those all about a natural concealed look too. I use Sephora’s eggspert mini sponges to apply the concealer, which helps the concealer go on so seamless and flawless.
Step 3 – Glossier Stretch Concealer in Medium as primer concealer. It brightens, conceals, and moisturizes under the eye. I used to only use this as my concealer, but I’m into layering two concealers for the extra bright under eye.
Step 4 – Milk Shadow Quad in Day Goals – This is cream shadow quad and I love how easy it is to apply with my fingers, it sets like a powder, the shadows are super blendable, and buildable, so you can create an intense color the more you apply.
Step 5 – Tight lining the upper lash line with the Agency Inn Modster eye liner in the color black. It really helps like my lashes look fuller than they are, because my brother got that genetic gift.
Step 6 – Smudged eyeliner with a liquid wing at the end, inspired by my favorite makeup artist Violette (check out her Smudged eyeliner Youtube tutorial). I use Stilla’s All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner , which is a new addition to my make up rotation, because it recommended by my closet friends.I really like how easy it is to use for a newb like me. What’s great about this liquid liner is that you can start with a soft thin or you can finish with super dramatic bold line.
Step 7 – Then I go in with the Burberry Face Contour Stick, which creates soft shadows to enhance, define and sculpt the face, but I have yet to master contouring to define my face, I like to use it to define my crease. I smudge it on and then use a blending brush to blend it in.
Step 8 – For my brows I use Glossier boy brow. It defines, smooths, thickens and it is super easy to apply! It doesn’t leave my brows hard or sticky like other brow gels or brow products. It’s a creamy wax formula inspired by traditional hair pomade, so it’s soft, flexible and doesn’t stiffen or flake. It also comes in clear too.
Step 9 – ThenI like to apply concealer again. I’m really into Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat. It’s another highlighting type concealer that you can use to brighten up your complexion, but it also is a good way to clean up fall out. It blends seamlessly so you get a healthy natural look (MY FAAAVORITE).
Step 10 – I go back into the Milk Quad and use the lightest color to highlight under my brow bone and cheek bone.
Step 11 – Now it’s time to mattify lightly and set everything in. As I shared I like a dewy look, but I’ll finishing with Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush flawless skin perfecting micro powder, because it’s a fine milled powder that mattifies, but leaves a bright illuminating finish to the skin.
Step 12 – Then I go in with some bronzer. I’m really into this ELF QUAD in Deep Bronze that has 4 different shades you can mix and match. 2 are shimmery and two are matte. I pick a shade depending on my mood and I like to lightly brush it all over my face. I use the real techniques blush brush to apply the bronzer. I love how fluffy and soft this brush is.
Step 13 – Curl Lashes + Mascara – really into Dior’s Pump + Volume mascara. They just realized this product and I’m so so impressed with how much it volumizes and lengthens my lashes. It gives me this falsie vibe without the false lashes + glue.
Step 14 – Now it’s time for highlight. My favorite is Glossier’s haloscope in Quartz! I like adding it to my cheek bone, the bridge of my nose, my cupids bow and under my brow bone. I really like how it adds an extra light and freshness to my face. The haloscope is easy to apply and so blendable!!
Step 15 – I found the perfect Lipstick + Lipgloss combo. I use a natural pinky nude satin lipstick by Dior called Rose Montaigne with Kylie Cosmetics KKW collaboration creme liquid lipstick kimmie.
